    Any Air Force new grad applicants FY2016?

    It will be one year of acute care in November.. I leave for COT in January so technically I have a year before NTP but.. I was selected for the NTP program... So I would still technically have to go through NTP? Bc otherwise you'd have to apply as FQ which wasn't the case. Hmm he's been right on about everything thus far..ill have to call and figure it out tomorrow. Thanks for the reply.

    Are any of you going to a different site for the NTP portion itself? I know musclesandmascara you said you're going to AZ before Keesler? My recruiter said that they were just sending people to their stations and doing NTP there. Did others hear that? I just want to be sure since it's getting closer. And I will be at Keesler with you as well! (Also I'd love to join the FB group, but my job can't find out I'm leaving until the month before), so I'm gonna stick to here until the FB page is completely private. It's getting close to January! Can't wait to meet everyone!

    Keesler Air Force Base Nursing

    Hi everyone just wondering if anybody could give me some input on what the patient acuity and patient population is like @ Keesler. I will be a new AF nurse with ER experience going through NTP bc I didnt have a year yet of acute care nursing when I applied. I will start Medsurg all over. Is it possible to get an ER specialty code sooner than after 2 years in the AF? Not expecting it, just wondering if it's possible. Thanks!

    To be honest I don't remember how long it took. I was an alternate last year so it never really came up.

    I have already commissioned because my scroll was already approved from when I applied last year.

    My recruiter said since we leave in January our choice of bonus vs loan repayment will depend on what they approve for FY 2016 not what they decided for FY 2015 which we are still in until we leave for COT.

    I was also select!!
  14. Newer nurse in trauma level 3 ER, I'm having trouble trying to remember the copious amounts of IVP meds that are new to me. I always read on here you should know everything about a med before giving it, but sometimes I feel it's impossible to remember it all. We only have 3 computers so it's difficult to have the chance to get on the computer to look up policies. Anyways I'm trying my best to look every med up before giving it through our policies versus a drug book but I just feel like there's so many meds, side effects, and contraindications, etc., it's overwhelming. How long did it take other ED nurses to feel comfortable with the copious amounts of meds? Esp potent meds. And how long did it take you to feel like you belong in the ED? I feel dumb pretty much everyday, but my preceptor says I'm doing good. I'm still fearful of how easy it is to make a mistake but I remain calm in emergencies. I feel ill do good eventually, but I'm wondering how long I should give eventually to come. Any thoughts?

    I took 80 questions is that bad?

    I'm sure your fine! When I took the NCLEX last year the PVT gave me the good pop up and I passed. I thought I failed too bc the questions were very difficult, but I passed and it shut off at 75. If it felt difficult I'm sure you passed. 80 isn't a big deal.

    Should I have charted different?

    We wouldn't have had the resources to stabilize the patient, she needed to be intubated and they don't do that at that facility. Which is why I was trying to get her sent out. After I called the MD I called the supervisor and got the same answer. Who else do you call when it's the middle of the night and these are your higher ups? Later my manager told me to call him in the middle of the night. But I was pissed and no longer work there. Bc that was unacceptable to me.
